It needs major tlc, but I have been so indecisive about paint colors and paint types.
The paint colors were narrowed down to black or white, or even a metallic in gold or silver.
After testing out different types of paint, oil paint for metal was the winner.
I went to look in our paint cellar for the black Rustoleum paint, and found something even better! Keep scrolling...
I found a can of this green paint that came with our old car for doing touch-ups. Totally forgot we had it.
The shades of green are almost a perfect match so decided to give it a try. It's free and easy enough to change the color if we hate it.
Here is a sneak peek of the first coat. It did an excellent job of covering the rust.
Sorry about the bad flash photos- my work space lacks natural light. It's looking nicer in person. I will follow up with after photos when complete.
